HUNG

Recommended Posts

 

Haven't seen the latest episode yet, but it must have been good. Hung scored it's second highest ratings to date with 3.4 million viewers. That's excellent. Even though we know it's already been renewed for a second season, it's still awesome to see that it's doing so well in the ratings. Hope that translates into a few more seasons, and more success for all involved.

I'm glad it does so well. Proofs that there are lots of people with good taste out there. :)

 

Love the merchandise too:

The merchandise is cool, but the only shirts they have are for men. I'd like to see a ladies tee-shirt with the "Happiness Consultants" logo on it- you know, the smiley face with the wink.

 

I'd buy that. :P

Maybe the ladies shirts should have a "Happily consulted" or something on them.... ;)

I think the logo with the winking smiley face would say it all. ;)

So, I wonder: why is there nothing for the ladies?? After all, that's who "it's" for?

It's nice to see TJ so relaxed and, not to mention, so handsome. :P

The webs are getting tangled. Was it just me, or did it seem like Damon has a thing for Tanya? Hmmm.

 

The ending to each episode is bitter-sweet for me. I hate to see the 30 minutes are up, but at the same time, I'm really digging a lot of the songs they choose for the ending credits.

New York Times article that includes some talk about Hung: "Lust, American Style":

 

"The only place at the moment where you can see women forking over money to have sex with a gigolo is on HBO's salaciously named "Hung." "

 

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/19/opinion/...tml?_r=1&hp

 

and

 

Another article, this one from the L.A. Times that also talks about Hung:

 

"With 'Spread' and 'Hung,' the boy toy resurfaces. Some call it a sign of the economy."

and

"There's also the HBO water-cooler series "Hung," in which a financially desperate high school basketball coach, Ray Drecker (Thomas Jane), moonlights as a male escort..."

 

http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/...0,3095306.story

 

and

 

Anne Heche interview; she talks a bit about her character on Hung:

 

http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/...,0,222021.story

 

and

 

Lil blurb about Hung:

 

"I'm really liking this series, and look forward to it more than "Entourage" now. There are a ton of quirky characters, and I love how Thomas Jane doesn't play his role for laughs. "

"Jane Adams and Thomas Jane have freakish chemistry."

Article about "Grimidies" (grim comedies?); Hung is included:

 

"Grimedies are being manufactured primarily in the Showtime factory, with "Nurse Jackie'' as well as "Californication,'' "United States of Tara,'' "Secret Diary of a Call Girl,'' and "Weeds.'' Recently, though, HBO joined in, with "Hung.'' These are all half-hour shows, but they share a piquant, realistic spirit that isn't nearly sitcommy."

Article on Hung:

 

"Hung is a quality presentation, well-cast, beautifully shot, cleverly written..."

I was really getting into this interview and out of left field, it switched to something else about Michael Eisner. What the hell?

 

Tom's stuff was good, but I could care less about what Michael Eisner is up to.

I just love how confident the show is in it's writing and performances. This last episode kicked up the awkward meter and bent the needle for me. I actually found myself cringing for Tonya at the dinner party. I was wholly invested in the characters and events as I rarely am with TV shows.

I liked last nights episode. It had a very good blance of funny, yet heartbreaking. Poor Ray. There's always next week to look forward too.

and

 

a lil more talk about the Hung season finale episode:

http://www.examiner.com/x-4819-Cable-TV-Ex...ir-in-September

 

and

 

Blogger talk about Hung (starts halfway down the blog):

 

"...this hot man who struggles to not only love the people in his life, but himself as well, and accidentally starts discovering who he is along the way. I mean, we know men struggle, sure, but how often do we see it on TV or in the movies? Rarely, if ever."

 

http://www.forcesofgeek.com/2009/08/michae...ues-and-so.html

 

and

 

Short interview with Anne Heche:

http://www.winnipegsun.com/entertainment/t...0/10536041.html

 

and

 

Short article on Natalie Zea who plays Jemma on Hung:

"So I've been watching Hung ... It's proven to be a much more entertaining take on the premise than I expected. Thomas Jane and Jane Adams are simply perfect in their respective roles as the reluctant gigolo and his high-strung pimp."

 

http://www.tvsquad.com/2009/08/19/natalie-...-money-to-hung/

 

 

and

 

Blogger's '10 Actors to Watch" article; Tom is #2!; the blogger doesn't seem to know what's Ray's job is in Hung though, and is psyched about an upcoming movie of Tom's that I don't even know is set in stone, i. e., Run:

 

"Tom once more shows that he can deliver the goods and his performance week after week in Hung is on the other side of brilliant."

What I noticed at the last episode was that scene where the wife cried at Rey while he was trying to write the letter. She appeared suddenly at cried at him and he jumped and let the notebook :) and next second he had the book in his hands again :lol:

yah diddnt want to give it away. Man talk about a Bitch!

 

Yeah, I had a feeling there was something hinky going on with her, and boy, did she do a number on him! My favorite part was when he ran into his former high school rival in the bar and they ended up in a rematch in the rain. And both of them half-drunk. :lol:

 

Don't want to get too spoilery for those who haven't seen it, but I think this was one of my favorite episodes of the season. It was funny and sweet and kinda sad too. I have a feeling there's going to be more to Ray and Tanya's relationship before the season ends.
